Abu Dhabi Airports, in partnership with Presidential Flight and Royal Jet, kicked off its annual blood donation initiative yesterday (Monday). The blood drive took place in the Auditorium of Abu Dhabi Airports’ Headquarters.
The initiative forms a part of Abu Dhabi Airports’ ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility program, which encourages staff participation in a wide range of charitable initiatives, while also striving to educate the public on general health and social matters.
Blood donation contributes to saving thousands of lives without causing harm for donors. The total time taken for the blood donation procedure is no more than 10 – 15 minutes to collect one unit of blood – around 450 ml; which has the potential to save more than one life.
